Open source password manager provider Bitwarden is launching support for the System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM), enabling organizations to automate provisioning of users from a centralized directory or identity management service.
According to Bitwarden, this allows administrators of the company’s enterprise plans to activate SCIM support and integrate their Bitwarden installation with Azure AD, Okta, OneLogin or JumpCloud services.
SCIM can be used with Bitwarden for provisioning and deprovisioning of users and groups into Bitwarden and automatically updating Bitwarden users to reflect changes in the source directory.
In a press release, the company says the SCIM standard makes it easier for IT admins to provision users for SaaS products and internal tools, among other IT systems. Adding a new employee to the directory of identity management service automatically creates accounts for all the services their company uses and closes those accounts when a user leaves.
This provides a streamlined experience for both onboarding and offboarding employees, giving them access to their organization’s solutions and revoking that access to close security gaps.
The company says it has broad identity management integrations, with SCIM joining the standalone Bitwarden Directory Connector application. These options allow for the use of existing systems, in-line with other Bitwarden solutions including Login with SSO and the option to choose between cloud or self-hosted deployments.
